“Doing” a Doctorate – week 27

We need to change our family surname to Lumpy McLump –  first my mom’s and my matching hand lumps last week, and then this week I spotted a lump in youngest’s neck lymph. Yes, I did immediately begin palpating his neck, skull and armpit lymphs, and yes we were in public …

“Doing” a Doctorate – week 26

The NoObesity Apps paper which I submitted for FTC18 has been accepted. Seriously. I know, I can hardly believe it either!

“Doing” a Doctorate – week 20

Someone described this blog as the “Bridget Jones of Doctorates” – I’m (un)reasonably proud of that! Unfortunately (or fortunately for you, dear reader), I have nothing else to say this week because I have been too busy working to have time for anything else. Week 20 of 48 allocated (part …

“Doing” a Doctorate – week 19

Found a perfect pictorial example of what my week has been like. Or perhaps this is my attempt at trying out photo elicitation (What?! Shaddap!  I’m trying to learn how to speak like an actual doctoral student). Life, you’ve got to laugh in the very face of it….only not for …
